The Debbie Macomber Books I've Read

The Perfect Christmas

Debbie Macomber Christmas Novels – The Perfect ChristmasCredit:

The Perfect Christmas is a representation of the plight of many modern day women, those who enjoy their career, but also yearn to find their soulmate and create a family. And for every woman like Cassie Beaumont, our heroine, Christmas only exacerbates this lonely feeling, leaving her all the more glum, especially after reading a friend’s Christmas letter, detailing her happy and complete life. Having been unsuccessful, thus far, in finding her “Mr. Right,” and unwilling to wait any longer, Cassie hires the services of psychologist and professional matchmaker, Simon Dodson, who promises to uncover her “most suitable match.” Well, who’s to know that, in the end, it will be Simon, himself, who proves to be her “most suitable match” and more!

Christmas Letters

Debbie Macomber Christmas Novels – Christmas LettersCredit:

Katherine O’Connor, a.k.a. K.O., while searching for a job, writes Christmas letters for people on the side. Christmas letters – you know those yearly notes that you pen and mail to your friends, telling them how wonderful your life is. One morning, while writing in her favorite coffee shop, K.O. encounters child psychologist, Dr. Wynn Jeffries. Now, her sister’s crazy about Dr. Jeffries’ “Free Child” child raising methods, as outlined in his book, which her sister never stops quoting from and applauding. Well, K.O. has her reservations about his methods, and here the sparks fly when heroine and hero meet. However, sparks ignited by intellectual differences, soon ignite into an all consuming love and passion. And for some added laughs, throw in a loving and well-meaning neighbor, who happens to believe she’s psychic, and pair her with the hero’s widowed father.

When Christmas Comes

Debbie Macomber Christmas Novels – When Christmas ComesCredit:

Emily Springer is beyond sad when she learns from her college student daughter that she won’t be coming home for Christmas. So, Emily decides if her daughter is too busy to fly home for Christmas, she’ll take Christmas to her in Boston. To cut expenses, Emily checks out a house swapping website, where she changes abodes for Christmas with college history professor, Charles Brewster.

Emily’s best friend, Faith Kerrigan, alone in her own way, decides to surprise Emily by flying to spend Christmas with her in her hometown of Leavenworth, Washington.

Now poor gorgeous and brainy Charles, who’d been previously dumped at Christmas, and now possesses a bitter and lonely heart at this most merry time of year, thought this Leavenworth, Washington was the Leavenworth of penitentiary fame. So, imagine his shock when he arrives in Leavenworth to see that it’s decorated and celebrates Christmas nothing short of the North Pole itself … and without a Federal prison in sight! Enter Christmassy Faith, and with Santa, elves, some snow, and lots of laughter, sparks and love follow.

And back in Boston, Charles’ brother, Ray, at their mother’s beckoning, has gone to check on Charles, to see why a woman is staying at his place. And like on the West Coast, romance soon heats up on the East Coast, when Ray encounters Emily at Charles’ Boston home.

If you’re not the bookworm, never fear, as this novel has been made into a television Christmas movie under the name, Trading Christmas, and having debuted on the Hallmark Channel, Christmas 2011.
